Senior Day. Alabama vs Auburn. The Iron Bowl, a battle of true SEC heavyweights. Auburn came into the game having beaten Alabama 6 times in a row. That’s what made the 36-0 shutout by the Rolling Tide so much sweeter. Without a touchdown, much less a field goal – the only 7 the Auburn Tigers earned was their 7th loss on the season.
And the Tide, well, they remained perfect. 12-0. And their leader, John Parker Wilson, the prototypical American Quarterback, played one of his best games of the year and still looked like he hadn’t played a single snap after the game. No homo.
